Foxy Locks Clip In Hair Extensions Review.


Having never used any type of hair extensions before, I was kind of curious to try some out. However, I did not know which ones to pick out. Should I purchase them from Sally's Beauty Supply or find some over the internet? Did I want synthetic or human hair?
 After reading Cheryl's (from Makeup By Cheryl H) review of the Foxy Locks Extensions I thought "DUH" why did I not think of Foxy Locks before? Her post came at the perfect time so I knew that I was meant to order them. I have had these extensions since early October and wear them about 6 days out of the week so I feel that I can give them a pretty honest and thorough review. 

Here is a pic after putting the extensions in my hair right after taking them out of the package. 
This was the moment that I fell in love with hair extensions.


The owner of the Foxy Locks Extensions company is Imogen.  I am an avid follower of Imogen on her Youtube channel as well as her blog Bubble Dreams.... She is such a classy lady and always does great tutorials using her Foxy Locks Hair Extensions as well as makeup tutorials. 

The Hair

Foxy Locks Extensions are made of protein rich, 100% human remy hair. Remy hair is the highest quality of human hair that is used for extensions. Remy hair gives the most natural looking hair because the cuticle has not been stripped and the hair remains in the same direction This means you will get smooth, natural, and  tangle free hair. 
Foxy Locks are available in 3 different weights: 120 grams, 160 grams, and 215 grams. 
The 120 gram set is recommended for those with fine hair. The 160 and 215 gram sets are recommended for those with thicker hair or those who want a lot of volume from their hair extensions. 

The deluxe 160 gram extensions come with 
4 single clip wefts,
2 double clip wefts, 
2 triple clip wefts, 
and 2 wefts with 4 clips
I find myself using all but the four single clips.
 I use these on occasions where I want extra volume. 

All of the extensions are 20 inches long which is pretty long seeing that most extensions come anywhere from 14 to 18 inches.

These extensions come in 14 different colors. 
Images from foxylocksextensions.com
 So there is guarantee that you will come very close to matching your hair color. Because it is hard to match your color closely by just looking at a picture on the internet, the people at Foxy Locks are available so you can e-mail them a picture of your hair and they will respond with the hair color they have matched you with. Imogen also has a Youtube video showing each color of extensions for ease in deciding color.


Because they offer 3 different light shades of blonde, I wanted to be sure of what my color match was before I ordered the extensions. I e-mailed them a photo of my hair and within a day or two I got a response with them saying I was matched to the Platinum Blonde #90.
This is a perfect match for my hair.

Upon opening the package and first examining the hair, I noticed how thick and smooth it was! The hair was looked shiny and healthy. But, it was not too shiny that it looked fake.

I had worn these extensions quite a lot before having to wash them (They recommend that you wash them right after recieveing them, but I did not). When wearing the extensions after washing them, I noticed a significant amount of shedding that was not present before I washed them. Like I said, I have not owned extensions prior to this, so I looked it up and it is normal for there to be some shedding with extensions. There still has been a lot of hair that has fallen out.
It kind of freaks you out.
Like OMG MY EXTENSIONS WILL BE BALD.
But by now most of the shedding has stopped.

The ends of the hair are not the greatest. When reciving the extensions and wearing them for the first couple of times, I noticed the ends were a bit on the scraggly side. It looks like there is a good inch that needs to be cut off. I know a lot of people get their extenisons cut and layered. I, however, was not too bothered by the ends and liked the length so I did not cut mine. I try to be as careful as I can with the hair as to make it last. I do not use a lot of hot tools on it and when I do, I always use a heat protectant. I have noticed with 3 months of wear, there are now a good amount of split ends. It is not to the point where it looks bad. It would only be noticeable when looking closely at them. I do not know if this is the same case with all of the colors of extensions or just the lighter blonde colors since they have been bleached.

The Clips

The clips come already sewn onto the hair. They are made with a silicone insert which causes less damage to the hair. 
The clips hold in very well. I was worried with using the clip in hair extensions, that they could possibly fall out. The clips do not clip onto a large amount of hair, but once they are in, they are in! I have never had them fall out. I have, however, had one clip randomly stop working for no reason. Like completly not clip at all. Foxy Locks does include 1 extra clip with the pack of extensions. But I do not know how to sew the clip onto the extension, nor do I know anyone who does.

Clipping in these extensions is super easy. Because I had never worn extensions before, I watched Imogen's Youtube video on how to clip in these extensions. She explains and shows the process perfectly.


  Now that I have the hang of clipping in the extensions and where they go, it takes me less than 5 minutes, if that. And, teasing is not necessary for the clips to stay secured which I am very happy with.

Styling

Becuase these extensions are made from human hair, there are many things that can be done with them. You can flat iron, curl, and even dye these extensions. Regular shampoo, conditioner, and other hair products such as hair spray and heat protectant can be used on them. Basically, you can do anything to them that you can do to your own hair.

I feel that the best way to wear these extensions is with a little wave or curl. This is when they look the most natural and blended with my own hair. When worn straight (without being cut and layered), they look a little on the unnatural side. Just in my opinion.
The way that I style mine the most is using my Remington clampless curling iron or my flat iron. I do not use a lot, if any, hair spray on the extensions to avoid too much product buildup. Even without using hairspray, the curls hold up awesome. Way better than my own hair!  The curls usually will last a few days before falling out a bit. It takes about a week or more for the curls to completely fall out.

Here is a pic of how the extensions look when dried naturally.
 They have a slight wave that looks really natural.  





Price and Shipping
These extensions are fairly inexpensive for the amount of hair that you're getting. 
The prices are as follows:
120 gram extensions - £56.00 or $86.60
160 gram extensions- £74.00 or $114.44
215 gram extensions- £118.00 or $182.49

Foxy Locks are shipped worldwide.
The shipping is very fast for coming all the way from the UK.
 I received mine about 7 days after placing the order.


Final Thoughts

Overall I have been loving these extensions so much! I never thought that I would ever wear extensions. I thought that they would look unnaturally fake on me. But these look so natural that I am not afraid to wear them. When I am wearing these extensions, I feel like the hair is really mine. I have always wanted to have really long hair and I finally can. It feels great. I hope that these will last me a long time. But even if they do not, I will be repurchasing them

If you are looking for good quality yet inexpensive hair extensions I would def. recommend Foxy Locks 100 percent!

  7. They look great on you and the color match is perfect. When I had short hair and wanted extensions I would go to Ebony and buy just the pack of hair and the clips separately and sew them in myself. I saved a lot of money doing it this way, but it's also pretty time consuming.

  8. Wow, what a great review Dani! I've heard quite a lot of great things about these extensions and even though I'm way too lazy to wear mine (not from Foxy Locks though), I'll be sure to consider them if I ever want some extensions to wear on a daily basis. The shade they picked for you looks absolutely stunning - so does your hair x

      That did eventually happen to my extensions, but I had them about a year to a year and a half before it started doing that. I would recommend using a deep conditioner on your extensions or maybe even an oil like argan because the hair is not getting any natural oil like your own hair would. I did end up buying a new set of extensions and they are fine. :) hope this helps!
